Eleven Muslim men ‘plied girls of 13 with drink and drugs to use them for sex’

A group of 11 Muslim men plied girls as young as 13 with drink and drugs so they could use them for sex ‘several times a day’, a court heard today.

(Scroll down for video)

The five girls, who were aged between 13 and 15 when the alleged abuse began, were passed around by the men ‘who acted together to sexually exploit the girls’, a trial at Liverpool Crown Court was told.

The offences are said to have happened in and around Rochdale, Greater Manchester, in 2008 and 2009. All the girls were from broken homes and one was in care.

Liverpool Crown Court heard that some of the girls were raped and physically assaulted and some were forced to have sex with ‘several men in a day, several times a week’.

Opening the case, prosecutor Rachel Smith said: ‘Some of you may find what you are about to hear distressing. The events and circumstances described by the girls are at best saddening and at worst shocking in places.

‘No child should be exploited as these girls say they were.’

Miss Smith said the girls were given alcohol, food and money in return for sex but that there were times when violence was used.

‘There were also occasions on which one or more of the girls were so incapacitated by alcohol and/or drugs that they were incapable of having any control over whether or with whom they had sexual intercourse,’ she said.

The court was told that some of the defendants paid the girls and took payments from other men to whom they supplied the girls for sex.

Kabeer Hassan, 24, Abdul Aziz, 41, Abdul Rauf, 43, Mohammed Sajid, 35, Adil Khan, 42, Abdul Qayyum, 43, Mohammed Amin, 44, Qamar Shahzad, 29, Liaquat Shah, 41, and Hamid Safi, 22, are on trial at Liverpool Crown Court charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children under the age of 16.

They have all pleaded not guilty along with a 59-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons.

He also denies two counts of rape, aiding and abetting a rape, one count of sexual assault and an allegation of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation.

Mohammed Amin (left), who denies sexual assault, was among the defendants on trial along with Abdul Qayyum (right)

The court heard the men knew each other and that two of them worked in the takeaways Tasty Bites and the Balti House, both in Market Street in the Heywood area of Rochdale.

Four of the other men worked as cab drivers at local taxi firms, one was a student and four were jobless.

The men were known to the girls by nicknames such as ‘Master’ and ‘Tiger’, the court was told. The girls would often spend their days ‘unsupervised by responsible adults’.

They were not in school regularly and ‘drank and smoked and hung around with little to do’.

Miss Smith said they were the ‘sort of children who were easy to identify, target and exploit for the sexual gratification of these men’.

One girl, who was 13 when the alleged abuse began, told police that the men she met were ‘friends’ who looked after her and ‘her number would be passed around amongst the Pakistani men in her area’.

She told police: ‘When you’ve got Asian friends, number gets passed and they pass it to their friends. And they pass it to their friends, end up with a massive circle… everyone’s got it.’

Abdul Rauf (left) denies trafficking for sexual exploitation while Mohamed Sajid denies trafficking, two counts of rape and one allegation of sexual activity with a child

Miss Smith said: ‘The prosecution say that what this girl was describing was the group activity of a number of adult men, including these defendants, who had spotted the opportunity to sexually exploit children who were vulnerable to that sort of exploitation and were taking it.’

One 13-year-old victim fell pregnant to one of the defendants and had the child aborted, the jury was told.

Another teenager recalled being raped by two men while she was ‘so drunk she was vomiting over the side of the bed’.

Miss Smith told the jury that one of the older girls, who was 16 at the time of the alleged abuse, recruited younger girls for the men as well as having sex with them for money.

Miss Smith said she introduced a 14-year-old girl ‘to a number of different men who wanted to have sex with her, with or without her consent’.

The victim met the defendants at a takeaway, including the 59-year-old male who cannot be named.

‘She was raped there and elsewhere and also taken by the man to other places where she was provided by him to other men for sex,’ Miss Smith said.

One girl, who was 15 when she met the defendants, told police that she was initially ‘flattered’ by the attention of the men. She said that she thought it meant that she was ‘attractive and they thought she was pretty’, the court heard.

However she quickly became regularly heavily drunk, depressed and ‘incapable of getting herself out of the situation’.

She told police: ‘At first I was scared, then after that it….just didn’t bother me anymore…At first I felt dead bad and horrible but then I didn’t feel anything anymore.

‘I didn’t like it but it didn’t bother me….Because, it had been happening every day. Most of the time I was just dead drunk so that when it happened I wouldn’t feel as bad.’

Miss Smith said the girl was ‘persistently coerced or forced into submission by them’.

‘When she was told that she had to have sex with the particular defendant or other men, she would submit to them (That’s what Islam stands for, to submit!), although she describes herself as lying impassively with her eyes shut or looking at the wall. She was given alcohol, which she drank heavily, not least because it numbed her thoughts to what was happening to her.’

A bomb alert at Liverpool Crown Court brought proceedings to a halt during the trial of the eleven men accused of grooming young children

The court heard that it was ‘common knowledge’ among the defendants that the girl was 15 and that Abdul Aziz would give her lifts to school while Abdul Rauf asked the other older girl if she ‘knew anyone younger’.

The court heard that on one occasion the 59-year-old man met two girls at a takeaway where they were given food and vodka.

He demanded sex from one 15-year-old, saying: ‘It’s part of the deal because I bought you vodka, you have to give me something.’

Miss Smith said the girl refused and he raped her. When the girl started crying, he said: ‘Don’t cry, I love you.’

On another occasion, the 59-year-old took one of the girls to Oldham where she was raped by another male whom she did not know.

On the way home, he told her: ‘Don’t tell anyone, I’ll give you money, I’ll give you anything you want.’

The court heard about another occasion when the man said he gave girls the vodka as a ‘treat’ and that they had to have sex with other men. He also plied girls with cannabis, the court heard.

The court was told that in about August 2008 Abdul Aziz ‘took over’ from the 59-year-old and started taking girls to various locations where they would have sex with older men – including a flat in Rochdale where Mohammed Sajid and Mohammed Shazad lived – where a ‘group of men’ would always be waiting to have sex with them.

‘Abdul Aziz was being paid by the various men to whom he delivered the girls for the purposes of sex,’ Miss Smith said.

One girl estimated that she was ‘having sex with several men in a day, several times a week’, Miss Smith said. Another girl said she was attacked by Adil Khan when she refused ‘two of four men’ who were waiting for sex at a Rochdale house.

Another alleged victim, who was 14, said she would get ‘proper hammered’ and she ‘lost count of the number of times she had had sex with men when she did not want to do so’.

Miss Smith said: ‘She was unable to describe all of the men but said she would regularly find herself drunk to near-unconsciousness, waking up with men having sex with her.’

The same girl said she was raped by Abul Aziz in his taxi in December 2009 and afterwards he told her she no longer needed to pay a taxi fare.

She also described an occasion when Liaquat Shah raped her while Hammid Safi watched.

The court heard that on another occasion the same two defendants raped her together with Safi saying ‘I want a turn, I want a turn’ after Shah carried out the first rape.

She also said the two men raped her while she was so drunk ‘she was vomiting over the side of the bed’ after drinking Sambuca, vodka, beer and Jack Daniels.

She told police: ‘They were just having it in turns sort of thing… there was nothing I could do, I was throwing up, I just kept throwing up… And I felt like I couldn’t move.’

Miss Smith said: ‘They saw her being sick and each raped her. Afterwards they left and she cried herself to sleep.’

Another girl said she was attacked by Adil Khan when she refused to have sex with ‘two of four men’ who were waiting for sex at a Rochdale house.

In December 2008 a 13-year-old girl fell pregnant to Adil Khan, who later denied even knowing her, despite police having DNA proof he was the baby’s father.

Hassan, from Oldham, and Shahzad, from Rochdale, also deny rape.

Aziz from Rochdale, denies two counts of rape and one allegation of trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Khan and Rauf, both from Rochdale, have also pleaded not guilty to trafficking for sexual exploitation. Sajid, from Rochdale, denies trafficking, two counts of rape and one allegation of sexual activity with a child.

Amin, from Rochdale, denies sexual assault. Shah and Safi, from Rochdale, each denied two counts of rape and Safi has also pleaded not guilty to trafficking.

Aziz, Khan, Safi and the 59-year-old are remanded in custody. Qayyum, from, Rochdale, and the rest of the defendants are on bail.

Also as we’ve come to expect the media refers to them as just “Asian” rather than Muslim and online comments haven’t been allowed because we can’t upset the Muslim invaders.

    (That’s what Islam stands for, to submit!) Islam means to submit to God, not to a paedophile.
    FYI You are not a muslim if you drink alcahol , have sex outside of marriage,any form of rape this includes if your wife does NOT consent, running a sex exploitation ring, threatening young girls or anyone with violence and exploiting young vulnerable girls.  
    These men are dirty, disgusting, manipulative  evil paedos (who i hope are sent to jail for a very long time) but they are most definately not muslims. Whoever wrote this article need to get get their facts right and change the title of your article.

      “Islam means to submit to God, not to a paedophile.”

      Mohammed was a  paedophile, he married a 6yr old girl when he was in his 50s . You are obviously a Muslim playing Taqiyya

        He wasn’t god believe look into why he married her. Oh and she was not 6!!!!!!Just to reiterate he was not god he was a man nd alcahol abuse rape are all illegal in Islam.

        Pick up a Quran or read some hadiths online it might make you understand what islam is, peace. Is is not plying young girls with alcohol and raping them. My point was

          “The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of pedophilia”
          Well lets look at some of the Koran which again is said to be the world of Allah and blasphemy to be interrupted in any other way than his word!

          Believers, do not make friends with any but your own people…They desire nothing but your ruin….You believe in the entire Book…When they meet you they say: ‘We, too, are believers.’ But when alone, they bite their finger-tips with rage.” (Surah 3:118, 119)

          “If you should die or be slain in the cause of God, His forgiveness and His mercy would surely be better than all the riches…” (Surah 3:156-)

          “Seek out your enemies relentlessly.” (Surah 4:103-)

          “The Jews and Christians say: ‘We are the children of God and His loved ones.’ Say: ‘Why then does He punish you for your sins?” (Surah 5:18)

          “Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends.” (Surah 5:51)

          “Believers, when you encounter the infidels on the march, do not turn your backs to them in flight. If anyone on that day turns his back to them, except it be for tactical reasons…he shall incur the wrath of God and Hell shall be his home…” (Surah 8:12-)

          “Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme.” (Surah 8:36-)

          “If you fear treachery from any of your allies, you may fairly retaliate by breaking off your treaty with them.” (Surah 8:51-)

          “…make war on the leaders of unbelief…Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them…” (Surah 9:12-)

          “Fight against such as those to whom the Scriptures were given [Jews and Christians]…until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued.” (Surah 9:27-)

          “If you do not fight, He will punish you sternly, and replace you by other men.” (Surah 9:37-)

          “Prophet make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home.” (Surah 9:73)

          “Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them.” (Surah 9:121-)

          “Fight for the cause of God with the devotion due to Him…He has given you the name of Muslims…” (Surah 22:78-)

          There I think it speaks for itself and explains why Islam is so backward and its followers brainwashed to hell.

          You are just lying as the Koran tells you, Taqiyya

          I really don’t know why some ppl jus want to focus on the differences between us were all human beings. All the main world religions teach peach and love for your brothers and sisters but some ppl hav so much hatred insid them that they just want to divide ppl islam is a peaceful religion its individuals that’s are bad not religion.

          When there’s a depression going on ppl want to scapegoat a group of ppl so that they hav someone to blame for everything this article does this by declaring that Muslim men (who by the way army Muslims) are Paedos, and some person on this site trying to demonise a religion he/she clearly knows nothing about. This is how the holocaust started last time hitler using a certain group of people in this case the Jewish as a scapegoat for the depression and look what happened!!!!

        You need to study Islamic history deeper, and from the right source. During that era there were many wars the Muslims faught, and the holy prophet after many men were killed, and women and children were left un-protected some were taken as wives by the prophet as well as some of his Khalifa due to a revealation. We know pologamy is a sin, but prostitution is a greater sin. To marry, and protect these women was an honor to them.

         The holy prophet was given many gifts from kings, ruler, and common people who say thim for the noble, moral character he hand, Some gifts were their daughters, of which to turn down a gift in high society is an insult. The holy Prophet did not consumate the marriage until the child was of age, and were first offered their freedom……This is the character of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

    How sad that in the English courts, no matter how vilely these men behaved, they will receive only minor punishments (in fear of racial reprisals) and they will be sentenced for each crime of which they are found guilty but the sentences will run concurrently. This means that ten guilty verdicts with a tarrif of five years each will result in only a maximum term of five years. This is so wrong!

    I don’t think the vast majority of sex grooming cases are perpetrated by Pakistanis. Even on the basis of your own statistics it cannot be said that the majority are Pakistani. That is not to say there are no Pakistani predators, there definitely are, but the problem is not as endemic as you suggest.  I think these predators looked for the most vulnerable girls in society. They wanted sex with any girls. I think there was no racial motive. I certainly don’t think there is a belief in the Pakistani community that nativ girls are lesser beings or deserve to be mistreated. There is no evidence what-so-ever to suggest that men in the Pakistani community target white girls just because they are white. I think predators target the most vulnerable girls who just so happen to be white. No one denies that there are some racist Pakistanis in Rochdale. Just as some nativ Brits think Pakistanis are inferior, there are also some Pakistanis who think that native Brits are inferior. In May, nine men were jailed for a total of 77 years after a court heard that they had plied girls as young as 13 with drink and drugs before carrying out acts of abuse. Many of the girls, who all came from deprived family backgrounds, had been in the care of the local authority. Last month, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Runaway and Missing Children and Adults delivered a devastating report which claimed that up to 10,000 children were going missing from care every year. I can show you not 1, not 2, not 3 but at least 20 different gangs just in London, all white involved in sex grooming of underage girls. Anyone willing to bring that into light? Sue Berelowitz, England’s Deputy Children’s Commissioner – who this week will publish a separate report into protection for children in care – told MPs that ‘sexual exploitation of children is happening all over the country. It is very sadistic’. She said the number of victims was in the ‘thousands’. A Government source said: ‘Child sexual exploitation is an abhorrent crime. We have all been shocked by the heartbreaking stories that have come to light.’ “Girls” at college and university should know better and what’s wrong with saying no? Men have always tried to get away with what they can with women but it only seems to be called grooming if it involves certain people. Young schoolgirls is one thing but college/university women are something else, take responsibility for your actions instead of blaming the guys and trying to make it a race/religion thing. Here is a truth that I know will fall on deaf ears….. Any man who does what those pedophiles did is automatically forfeiting his right to be a Muslim. A Muslim is not allowed sex outside of marriage. If a person does not follow the teachings of their religion then why are people labelling them as part of the religion. Finally why is it that if an Asian person commits a crime it is labelled as a ‘Muslim’ has done it? Whilst if a white person commits a crime then it’s is white even if they are ‘Christian’. Why does a religion have to be stigmatised by the press when the reality is that the person is not following the religion. P.s red arrow me but I’m just saying the truth.It should also be remembered that our own government until 1965 were stealing very young children off their mothers and were sending them to British Colonies where vast numbers were suffering the most horrendous forms of abuse, Google “Lost Innocents”Lost Innocents tells how the British Government stole 150.000 children from their mothers and sent them to the colonies where they were subjected to physical, emotional and sexual abuse!!!!!! And not one person has been made to pay for their actions because it was the British Government that was doing the abusing! They were no better than legalised paedophiles. Implement shariah law in this country, which means rapists with be executed, this will reduce rape by 90% as people will fear being caught and facing death, we all know rapists are released from prison after a few years WHYYY !! they get out and rape again !! execution is the only way to get rid of the rape/paedophile problem in the UK !!!! going to prison doesn’t rehabilitate people it just makes them lose the mind and when they’re released they commit rape even more.Iftikhar AhmadLondon School of Islamics Trusthttp://www.londonschoolofislamics.org.uk
